What will I learn?

The Economics program provides students with a solid training in Economics emphasizing rigorous analytical thinking and advanced quantitative methods. Faculty members are internationally recognized economists. Our aim is to train economists suited both for academic and non-academic careers.

Learning objectives

  • During the first year, students will study the foundations of economics and quantitative analysis, whereas the second year is devoted to field courses that will expose them to recent developments at the frontier of economic research in a variety of topics. At the end of the second year students will work on their final dissertation.
  • Besides taught courses, the curriculum also offers an internship program with either economic research institutions located in the Milan area or within the University’s Department of Economics and Finance, where students are offered the opportunity of working as applied economists on real world economic issues, as well as meeting prospective employers.

The skills acquired through the Economics program prepare students to pursue their careers both in academia through further education at the PhD level as well as in the labour market as applied economists in firms, banks and institutions.

Career Opportunities

The program is now at its seventh edition and to date has performed very well in terms of placement in the labour market (Eurizone, Deloitte, Oxford Policy Management, Intesa San Paolo, Chatham House) and in academia (some of our students are now completing their Ph.D. at Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona, University of Nottingham, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, and Unviersità Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, and include winners of prestigious scholarships granted by the Bank of Italy).
